TAPE NO. 32.......BY: ELLA ROSE MAST
1. The Book of Hebrews continued.....
Now as to the covenant . . . this second covenant . . . 'Behold! The day will come when I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers when I took them out of the land of Egypt because they continued not in my covenant. But this is the covenant I will make with the house of Judah and the house of Israel in those days, I will put my laws in their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be unto them a God, and they shall be unto me a people. And they will no longer need to teach their neighbor or his brother saying:...know the law, because they shall all know ME from the least to the greatest.'
Won't it be a great day when the new covenant is thoroughly implemented, the house of Judah and the House of Israel again . . . 'ONE stick in HIS hand?' The Law then will come from the hearts of the Israel people, and the world order will know who they are, as they rule with righteousness because every Israelite will understand what YAHWEH has proclaimed, and every Israelite shall see as He knows. In His Melchizedek Priesthood He calls the working of the Law forth out of the hearts of HIS people for the Sheep will respond to the Shepherds call.
As the Apostle Paul talks about this new covenant and the Melchizedek Priesthood, he records:...YAHWEH swears and shall not repent concerning the embodiment of His own body . . . in hour of His Resurrection as He again took up the mantle of the heavens . . . 'thou art a Priest forever after the order of Melchizedek . . . King of Salem (Peace) High Priest of His Kingdom, existing without father, without mother, without descent, without end of days or beginning of time, abides a Priest continually, after the incarnation of YAHWEH. ' And now you understand why His is without father, mother, without end of days or beginning of time, because YAHSHUA is YAHWEH in the flesh.
Now; the sons and daughters of YAHWEH can come in similitude to the Priesthood of Melchizedek. They can take a Priesthood alike unto HIS with HIM alone being above all, and to all the abiding father of the kingdom since this is the kingdom of Peace (Understanding) the kingdom of Righteousness (rightness).
Yes, Abraham is blessed by Melchizedek, and he paid tithe into the hands of YAHWEH. As the power of YAHWEH saved Abraham that day so shall he be possessor of the earth. There is then no Priesthood as high as the Priesthood of Melchizedek because His Priests don't have to make a sacrifice for transgression, for life, because under this Priesthood there is Endless Life, and it is passed on to the household of YAHWEH as we reach this point in time. There might have been a time when one of the race entered the Priesthood for instance . . . this being Enoch for he was carried into the heavens by a chariot of space. But we see this Priesthood of Melchizedek as a mystery, as a symbol. Have seen it move into its pattern of atonement then its fullness because it is a message of endless life. It is a Priesthood not of judgment but of blessing world without end. It is for the Adamic Race, these children of His Kingdom, and it points us toward our Destiny.
QUESTION:...And for this cause He is the mediator of the New Testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first Testament, they which were 'called' might receive the promises of Eternal inheritance.' Hebrews 9:15.
ANSWER:...Read that over again . . . YAHWEH-YAHSHUA is the Mediator of the New Covenant, He redeemed His Household by His Cross so that they might receive the promise of Eternal inheritance.
Go back to verse one as the Apostle Paul is explaining the difference in the Old and New Testament or Covenant. The old covenant was a law of conditions. Had ordinances and rituals of ceremonies of Divine purpose . . . Divine service and a Sanctuary (Exodus 25:8) where YAHWEH could dwell with His people. There was first a tabernacle and within was the candlestick, and the tables, and the shewbread. Then past the second veil was what was called the Holy of Holies. (vs 3) And there in the Holy of Holies was the golden censer, and the Ark of the Covenant overlaid with gold. There was the golden pot that held the manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant.
Now; the Priests would go always into the first tabernacle and perform the service of YAHWEH, (vs 6) but into the Holy of Holies only the High Priest alone went in, and only once a year, but not before he had also offered blood sacrifice for Himself, and then for the errors of the children of Israel. (vs 7)
In this first tabernacle the Holy Spirit was not as yet made manifest, it was just a symbol of what was to come. Gifts and sacrifice were offered but that did not make the one that did the service perfect (vs 9). There was different ordinances, rituals, rights imposed on them until the time of the fulfillment of the true sacrifice (vs 10). But since YAHSHUA came this High Priest pointing toward good things to come which was a greater and more perfect tabernacle not made by hands, not in a tent such as was the first tabernacle, and not even as the Temple in Jerusalem. (vs 11) This YAHSHUA who was YAHWEH in the flesh did not need the blood of calves and goats for He shed His own blood . . . once . . . and obtained Eternal Redemption for us. (vs 12). If the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean . . . sanctified (or justified) the purifying of the flesh then how much more shall the blood of YAHSHUA, this Eternal High Priest . . . YAHWEH in the flesh who offered HIMSELF? HE was the Spotless Lamb of sacrifice for you and me, thus how much more should this purge your conscience from dead works and bring you to serve the Living YAHSHUA . . . YAHWEH in the flesh. (vs 14)?
And for this cause He is the Mediator of the New Testament (covenant) that by means of death on the Cross redeemed us from transgression which was held against us under the first covenant so they who were called might receive the promise of Eternal inheritance. (vs 15) For where a testament is, there must of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament or covenant is in force . . . after death; otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. Therefore the first testament (covenant) was dedicated in blood. (vs 18) For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the Law he took the blood of calves and goats, with water, and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle and all the vessels of the ministry. Almost all things then are by the Law purged with blood, and without shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. It was therefore necessary that the pattern of things in the heavens should be purified with these. For YAHSHUA does not enter into the Holy places made with hands, these are but figures of the real things which are in heaven. He does not offer himself as does the Earthly High Priest once a year with the blood of others. (vs 25) For if that had been the case He would have suffered often ever since the foundation of the world; only this once in the end of this program for the world He appeared to put away sin by sacrifice of Himself. (vs 26) It is appointed unto men (Adamites) once to die but after this the judgment. And YAHSHUA would 'Once' bear the sins of many and unto them that look for HIM to appear another time. But He comes not this time to die for sin, but for salvation. (vs 28) . . . How could the Scripture be any more plain than that?
QUESTION:...'Wherefore when he cometh into the world He said:..Sacrifice and offerings thou wouldest not, but a body has thou prepared for me; In burnt offerings and sacrifice for sin thou hast had not pleasure.' Hebrews 10:5-6.
ANSWER:...The translation is still trying to establish that YAHSHUA was not YAHWEH in the flesh, but you now know different, and you allow for that as you read the tenth chapter. Notice . . . but a body has thou prepared me . . . showing how He came and thru whom so as to identify with His people. The Apostle Paul is still talking about the old covenant, a law of conditions which is only a shadow of the good things to come. Under this old covenant were the rituals of sacrifice offered year after year, but the blood of bulls and goats could not take away sins. It would only be this ''ONE'' who came in a body prepared out of the Adamic race who could be the perfect sacrifice to redeem His people. Thus it was necessary for this physical body of YAHSHUA to die on the CROSS . . . ONCE . . . and for all. (vs 10) And after He had completed the atonement He again picked up the scepter of authority in the heavens. (vs 12) For by offering His body on the Cross He has perfected those that are sanctified (Justified). Verse 14.
Now; the Holy Spirit witnesses to us that He has made this New Covenant with Israel as He said:...'I will put my laws in their hearts and in their minds will I write them, and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.' (vs 16-17) And since there is remission of sin then there is no need of an offering for sin. (vs 18) Therefore brethren since the atonement by the blood of YAHSHUA we can enter into the Holy of Holies by a new and living way which He has consecrated for us by His work in the flesh. (vs 20)
And now that we have once more a High Priest over our Household let us draw near with a true heart, in the full assurance of Faith because we are washed with pure water (vs 22). This being washed with pure water is being cleansed by the Spirit.
Let us pause for a second and remember back to the early winter of 1983 when the Sunday School literature at least from the Methodist and Christian churches here were telling Christians they should go find a Jewish friend and learn all about the Jewish Passover table. Remember that at the Temple in Jerusalem in the time of YAHSHUA there was no Ark of the Covenant nor the throne stone, or the other symbols of Israel, even the Glory of YAHWEH had been gone from the Holy of Holies for many years, actually since the time of Jeremiah for he had removed them and hid them then transferred the Ark, the Stone and the other symbols of Israel with his granddaughter Tea Tephi to Ireland. Then after the resurrection and the work of the Apostles was done in that old land then in 70 A.D., the temple was completely destroyed as YAHSHUA had told them it would be. Old Jerusalem is thus finished in the plan of YAHWEH except for judgment where as Israel moves on under the new covenant, with the communion table, and no longer do you look back at old Jerusalem as the center of the kingdom. The new covenant is a testimony of destiny for the household of YAHWEH'S children. Now you look to your hearts and minds and you see how you in blinders still followed your destiny and established His kingdom in the westward. Old Jerusalem now just represents those who are enemies of the kingdom until their judgment is finished, while New Jerusalem moves with and lives with His Household. Why then would you want to go back and learn the ways of old Jerusalem which at that time was occupied by the enemies of our Savior and still is today? Almost 2000 years ago YAHSHUA . . . YAHWEH in the flesh was our Passover from the old covenant to the new. And we now have HIS communion table for our symbol of our Savior's work. We have the Holy Spirit connection activated so that if our people will listen, He moves in our hearts and minds to unfold the mysteries of the kingdom. The New Covenant is a better covenant for it is a covenant of Destiny, this we will see fulfilled for it does not depend on our doing something, it is HIS WILL that brings us to Destiny. Even tho we His people stumble along thru the Great Apostasy, the falling away from the Faith, still Destiny decrees that the kingdom will rise and the World Order fall. The New Covenant is YAHWEH'S program and He will see that it is done, and we can count on that. Destiny will be fulfilled no matter how we stumble, so don't let yourself be entangled again in the rituals of the old law by your enemy until you put yourself in bondage once again as the Apostle Paul warned in Galatians 5:1. Open your eyes and see who it is that hates our Savior and the Christian Faith, works against it always.
Again we listen to the mysteries the Apostle Paul brings out as he talks about the work of YAHWEH, about the ultimate pattern of a great and mighty reconciliation in which Our Father is going to have at one in YAHSHUA . . . His embodiment . . . in the fulfillment of HIS Priesthood . . . all things . . . both in heaven and in earth . . . ALL THINGS . . . even under the earth, meaning in the Netherworld, until every knee shall bow and every tongue proclaim . . . WHAT?...ALL WILL PROCLAIM THAT YAHSHUA IS YAHWEH IN THE FLESH. 'Ye of Israel have obtained this inheritance, having been predestinated by the word of YAHWEH thru out Eternity, and before the world began that we should be like unto HIM . . . HOW?...Holy and without blame'. Why oh why then would you want to give away such an inheritance? Only thru blindness and ignorance of the word would Israel do this.
YAHWEH perceived the majesty of His Holy Household, and He brings this honor upon his sons and daughters for He determined that His children will be like HIM, and they with HIM shall rule the Universe. El-Orien who rules the Universe divides up the habitation of men according to the sons of Adam . . . according to the number of the children of Israel, and bestows upon them HIS blessings because HE is the Master of the earth, He owns the Universe, an sets the course of time . . . He fulfills His judgments.
In the Ancient Books such as in the writings of Enoch we discover that they wrote of an emerging of YAHWEH embodied with all the trappings of the great encasement of His Presence in the Melchizedek Priesthood thus without father, mother, having neither beginning or end of Life. Only ONE could measure up to this and He was the Eternal MOST HIGH YAHWEH. This then sketches the magnitude of human comprehension, it reaches beyond the perimeters of the things we are capable of thinking about in their purity. The endlessness in existence, the majesty of His power, the effulgent Glory of His countenance, all this exists in the Priesthood of Melchizedek. And now that we know we are under this New Covenant of Destiny we know that all shall be fulfilled because our Father has 'Willed' that it shall be . . . 'We are not of them who draw back into perdition, but them that believe to the saving of the soul.' Hebrew 10:39.
QUESTION:...'By faith Abel offered unto YAHWEH a more excellent sacrifice, a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, and by this Abel obtained witness that he was righteous (right). YAHWEH testifying of His gifts; and by it he (Abel) being dead yet speaketh.' Hebrew 11:4.
ANSWER:...Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. And Abel offered a sacrifice unto YAHWEH based on that Faith that YAHWEH would come to redeem His people. The sacrifice was a symbol of that Faith. Cain being the son of Lucifer saw things differently. He wanted his father to win this battle between Light and Darkness. In fact Cain offered a sacrifice pointing to things of the earth, not even understanding the symbol of 'The Lamb of Sacrifice'. In this eleventh chapter of Hebrews Paul explains the mystery of how the spiritual thought waves can fill men so that they live by it. He refers to Noah, Abraham, and his sons . . . Moses all who lived by this Faith which was a Living abiding Faith imputed to them as righteousness because they believed and obeyed YAHWEH. It was a growing, pulsing living Faith with these Patriarchs of our race, these leaders of the race who as with us were strangers and pilgrims in the earth, and the world (order) was not worthy of them. Paul talks about how these men of our race had come down out of the heavens, and were performing as they were supposed to do while in the flesh. They had stopped the mouths of Lions, had turned to fight the armies of the aliens, some died, some were martyred because they would not give up their Faith which was a part of them. Paul talks about a continuing work by this race who are the household of the MOST HIGH. This obedience to . . . this belief in YAHWEH is what set them apart from the world order. Because of his Faith Enoch was taken into the heavens without facing death. He had believed and obeyed YAHWEH in everything he did. (vs 5) Without this Faith it is impossible to please YAHWEH. Why? Because Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. Without Faith you cannot believe that HE is, or that He rewards those who diligently seek HIM. (vs 6)
By Faith being warned of YAHWEH, and believing YAHWEH Noah built the Ark and saved His household from the flood (in the Tarim Basin). (vs 7) Moving by Faith Abraham when he was called out of Ur, following YAHWEH'S instructions to the letter sojourned in a land promised to his seed, dwelt there as tho in a strange land. The promise to Abraham moved on thru Isaac and Jacob all heirs with Abraham of this same promise. (vs 8-9) For Abraham was looking for a city which hath foundations whose builder and maker is YAHWEH. (vs 10)
Now; remember that YAHSHUA spoke of a city on a hill, this is the kingdom, it is not to be put under a basket but the Light and Knowledge of the kingdom is to be as on a hill, where all can see it. Abraham saw the outline of this program of YAHWEH, SAW THE KINGDOM DEVELOPING TO FULFILL THE PROMISES and he believed this would come to pass. Today this is still our Faith we believe the words of YAHWEH because we are spirit of His Spirit. The Light emerged because your spirit is out of His Spirit, and His Spirit abides with you forever. Therefore Abraham saw that out of the soul consciousness of men of the race moved the patterns of statesmanship of YAHWEH'S kingdom because they are children of Light.
Thru Faith, Sarah received strength to conceive a seed and was delivered of a child altho she was well past age, but she judged that YAHWEH was able to fulfill that promise which was that . . . 'Sarah shall have a son.' (vs 11) Thus from Abraham altho he was 100 years old came children for the kingdom who number as many as the stars of the sky, or the sands of the seashore. (vs 12) How?...Because of this kingdom there is to be of no end. All these who were looking for that promise of the city . . . New Jerusalem fulfilling the promise, all died believing in that promise, believing they would be rescued and return home. They knew who they were, and that they were strangers and pilgrims in earth, but they were longing to see the kingdom set in place in earth, and to have their Light restored. (vs 13-14) Yes, they were seeking their birthright, but if they had remembered how to return to where they came from they would have grabbed the first opportunity to return. (vs 15) They desire their heavenly home where YAHWEH is their God, where there will be no one who does not believe that YAHSHUA is YAHWEH in the flesh, this will be the kingdom in place, the city on a hill which will never again be molested. (vs 16)
Therefore by Faith, Abraham when tested was ready to offer up this only son of Promise, Isaac the seed of the kingdom because he believed that YAHWEH was able to raise him even from the dead. (vs 17-19) By Faith, Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau and instructed them in the way they should go. Esau fell away but Jacob then by Faith, blessed both the sons of Joseph. Put his name Israel on those two sons making both sons of Joseph leaders in Israel and Joseph thus was given a double portion blessing. (vs 22) By Faith, the parents of Moses hid him for three months for they saw he was an exceptional child. Not obeying the kings commandment they hid the baby for three months then put him in the basket and the daughter of Pharaoh found him. (vs 24) Moses was then raised as the son of this daughter of Pharaoh, was schooled in the Ancient city of ON. Then when he found his people being mistreated he chose to suffer rather than to deny his race and enjoy the pleasures of Egypt. Moses as he was trained in the city of ON then learned the program of YAHWEH for this earth. Remember the Mystery Schools established by Enoch and Job and this White Priesthood was still in the city of ON when Moses was in school in that city. By Faith, then Moses moved to follow the directions of YAHWEH as he came back to Egypt to lead the children of Israel as YAHWEH delivered them from Egyptian bondage. (vs 27) By Faith, he instructed the Israelites in the 'Passover' and the sprinkling of the blood lest the first born would suffer the fate of the Egyptians. (vs 28) By Faith, the Israelites went thru the Red Sea as by dry ground while the Egyptians following were drowned as the waters came back together. (vs 29)
Later the Israelites by Faith marched around the city of Jericho carrying the Ark of the Covenant as YAHWEH had instructed, and the walls came tumbling down. (vs 30) By Faith, the lady Rahab, the innkeeper on the wall helped the Israelites. But she was a lady of the Adamic race, and she believed, and helped the Israelites . . . those spies escape from that old city. (vs 31) There were others of course such as Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David and Samuel and the Prophets, all thru Faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouth of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword. But out of weakness they were made strong, waxed valiant in the fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Women received their dead raised to life again, and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection. And others had trial of cruel mocking and scourging, yea, more over of bonds and imprisonment; they were stoned, they were swan asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword, they wandered about in goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented. The world was not worthy of this race as they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, in dens and caves of earth. (vs 38)
These all having obtained a good report, thru Faith, yet they did not receive the promise. But YAHWEH having provided some better things for his race still those who died before this reward . . . before the kingdom is set in place will also be made perfect, and those of Israel still here at the time will also go thru transition, for all Israel enters into HIS REST. Here the Apostle Paul has been telling you of this continual struggle generation after generation of the children of Light as they occupy earth, and move forward in their determined Destiny. In case you think Life is rough today better then go back and review history. For all thru the Adamic march as they struggled to expand the kingdom they have faced the Satanic enemy generation after generation. This is something our people need to realize today, but it was Faith that carried our ancestors thru, and it will be Faith that brings us into the kingdom rule.
QUESTION:...'Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race set before us, looking unto YAHSHUA the Author and finisher of our Faith, who because of the joy of redeeming His Family endured the Cross, and now sits again in the seat of authority in the heavens.' Hebrews 12:1-2.
ANSWER:...The Apostle Paul has just told us in chapter eleven of a few of the faithful of our race, but there were many, many of the race who have gone on who have witnessed, and took part in the battle for earth. They ran their race as each of us should run our race always looking forward toward YAHWEH-YAHSHUA the author and finisher of Our Faith.
We have said before that each generation has had their fight with the children of darkness, and history bears this out. Thus this great crowd of witnesses, for YAHWEH-YAHSHUA set forth an example for us to follow.
Now; in spite of the programs of the Great Society, and others, the program of YAHWEH'S kingdom is not a war on poverty. No, it is a war on sin and darkness. Poverty will be eliminated when sin and darkness are phased out, not before. It is true that the Elect, the children of YAHWEH establish standards by things that are right. It is time we selected the street called 'Straight' that we establish values based on their relationship to the laws of YAHWEH WHICH ARE INDESTRUCTIBLE. There is no doubt that we are in a might struggle for the enemy is trying to remove YAHSHUA (Christ) from our nation. Trying to pull the kingdom of YAHWEH down to the level of Lucifers own order under his guilt and revolt against truth. There is no question of the fact that we go thru cycles which look like temporary victories for the darkness. But always the triumph of spiritual wisdom, the laws of YAHWEH, the purposes of YAHWEH always make themselves manifest, and the kingdom surmounts it, survive it, and goes on with more of the race added continually to this great cloud of witnesses, those who have served in earth and gone home.
The Apostle Paul then goes on with his witness as he asks if you have resisted unto blood as you battle the darkness? Also you must not be disturbed because you are chastened by YAHWEH when you step out of line, for He does this because he loves us. Every son or daughter needs chastening at times so as to keep us on the path we should travel. If there are violations of law those violations bring chastisement but at least you know thru this chastisement that you broke the law. Even your own children do not love you just because you let them break the rules you establish. Someday they may remind you that you did not fulfill your responsibility. Since our earthly fathers need to correct and guide us because they love us, how much more then should we expect our heavenly father to correct us so that we live the life which brings us the greater reward? (vs 9)
But if ye be without chastisement whereof all His children are partakers then ye are bastards, not son? (vs 8) In other words are you then not born of this race, if not chastised then no you are not of this race. For our earthly fathers do try to correct and guide their children so that they walk the path deemed best for them, but our Heavenly Father chastens us so that we may partake of His Holiness. (vs 14) Therefore lift up your hands in praise and straighten your knees so you can walk tall and set an example for others of the race so that you cause no other to falter. (vs 13) Use understanding with all your brethren, and do nothing which might cause any of the race to fall away from the Faith so that no one sells their Birthright for a mess of pottage as did Esau. (vs 16) You remember that Esau married outside the race, thus he sold the birthright of his children. Later Esau tried to be reinstated in the blessing, but even tho he sought it carefully with tears he had still rejected his Birthright . . . held it lightly. (vs 17)
At Mt. Sinai remember this translation of Beast . . . 'Let not so much as a beast touch the mountain' . . . this was not four legged beasts, it was not oxen, sheep or goats that were to be stone. This was non-Israelites that they were talking about in that translation. The Apostle Paul is now going on with our history lesson and he asks:..What have we approached to? But we are come unto Mt. Zion, and unto the city of the Living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of Angels, to the general assembly of the first born which are written in the heavens, and to YAHSHUA-YAHWEH in the flesh, who is the judge of all, and to the Spirits of just men made perfect. (vs 22-23)
Now; we have come in contact with the spiritual center of the kingdom today it is called the church. So as we participate in church activities what have we approached to? Did we approach to the Mountain Mt. Sinai which was burning with the fire of the presence of YAHWEH, in the time when Moses was called to the leadership position? No. What we approach today . . . what we search for in the visible church, and what we find in the true church is Mt. Zion which is YAHWEH'S kingdom. Throughout the ages it has been His Kingdom that His children have been searching for throughout the old Testament and in the New. We are come unto Mt. Zion, the Kingdom, and to the city of the Living YAHWEH-YAHSHUA, the Heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of ministering spirits. You have thus come to the realization that the New Jerusalem has been coming down out of heaven, from YAHWEH thru Adam's race since the days of Adam, still coming down in our time, descending from the Celestial world into the physical world, by way of birth thru this Adamic race. This is not a city built of stones unless they are termed . . . Living Stone . . . thus a city of a race of people, and the entrance to this city is by 12 Gates with the names of the 12 Tribes of Israel above the Gates.
Let us point this out again, the Apostle Paul says that you have approached the church, the spiritual center of the kingdom which is this city of the Living YAHWEH, the heavenly Jerusalem, this company of Living Spirits, . . . 'Ye are the general assembly of the church of the 'first born', your names are written in the heavens, and to YAHWEH the judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect.' . . . All right. What does it mean by . . . this church of the first born? Where does this church come from? Today we hear the churches call themselves the 'church of the first born', but we happen to know who makes up that church so this is not the answer. This church (spiritual center) of the first born is the first begotten of His Spirit in the heavens. Yes. We can prove this for back in the Book of Romans where it is talking about the manifestation of the sons of God, then Paul said:..'We (Israel) and the whole creation are waiting for the manifestation of the sons of YAHWEH.' Romans 8:19. Here you are talking about YAHWEH'S posterity, His household in earth . . . 'The whole creation vibrates together with us waiting for this manifestation of the sons of YAHWEH (God). They as well as we who are the first fruits of His spirit.' Thus the first fruits of His spirit are His Celestial Issue in Celestial realms in the heavens of yesterday. Then He translated these of the first Celestial Issue to earth and we are thus embodied. We made our entrance into the physical world into the physical bodies of the Adamic race, and the fall of the race was because of violation of Divine Law by Adam and Eve as they cohabited with the Luciferian kingdom already here in earth. Thus in the beginning of our race immortality, this Light and Glory which made them immortal was lost. But this did not change YAHWEH'S plan for He knew this would happen even before He made the world. Thus Adam and Eve were still His Issue, still possessed a Holy Seed, still possessed the promise contained the reassurance that He would be as the Scripture refers . . . 'The Lamb slain before the foundation of the world.' Thus we who are the first fruits of the spirit became embodied in earth, and this seed continues on down to our time. And we who make up the church of the first fruits of His Spirit are also members of the church of the 'first born'.
Oh, you say:...but you are still referring to the church of today which started at the time of YAHSHUA (Jesus). No this church . . . the spiritual center of the kingdom is the church of the regeneration, this is the church of the renewing of the mind, this is the restored church, the true church, because the original was perfect in the spirit the day it was begotten.
Remember . . . thru His prophet that YAHWEH makes this declaration:...'Thou art my sons and daughters.' Then the Apostle Paul after his revelation writes in Ephesians, Galatians, and Romans saying:..'We are the offspring of YAHWEH, we are His children. His Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of His Household.' Here then in the Book of Hebrews this Apostle to Lost Israel tells us that as we approach the church we have come to the assembly of those who were in the spiritual center of the kingdom, in the heavens, but now are spiritually embodied people who make up the kingdom of YAHWEH in earth. We are this race now called Israelites-Anglo Saxons and so forth, and we are this New Order, the spirits of children (offspring) now justified by YAHSHUA in earth, thus the race of Destiny of YAHWEH'S purpose in earth.
We then ask you, can you take all that and reduce it to just man's choice? Turn then again to the Book of Romans where Paul records:..'The whole creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons and daughters of God'. Why are they waiting? Because we will finish the task, we were sent here to do. Thus we also who are here embodied wait for things to develop which relate to the kingdom because we are that people. We who are the first fruits, first begotten of His Spirit know that He is eventually going to put the whole world in order because He . . . our Father . . . our High Priest has Willed it.
We find people who say that this Gospel of the Kingdom teaches hate, but we tell you that this Gospel of the Kingdom is the only thing which shows any hope for the world at all. Every Satanic substitute, everything they have tried has ended up in destruction where as the kingdom of YAHWEH will only destroy evil, those designs of evil which enslave mankind for all times.
Now; we point this out. The Apostle Paul has made this identity, and refers to the fact that those who constitute this household of YAHWEH, (this church of translation) is loved by YAHWEH. He identifies this church this way:...'Even as a husband is head over his wife so is Christ head of His church, and He is Savior of our bodies.' Why is this? Because of what happened to our race in the fall of Adam and Eve . . . this brought a severance of our Seal of consciousness with the full spiritual guidance allowing death to come to the Adamic bodies. But the thing promised is that this will be restored. Immortality will be returned so that death can finally be conquered. This is what Paul was talking about as he said:..'The redemption, to wit, of our bodies.' Thus we of the first fruits of the Spirit, the church or assembly of the first born are waiting, to wit, for the redemption of our bodies for this conquest over death. And the whole creation is vibrating together as well waiting for the same thing. This does not mean flitting away into the heavens somewhere. This 'absent from the body is to be present with the LORD', means this spirit which in you can dwell there. It has been established, we are resident in physical bodies to develop the kingdom of YAHWEH in earth. Well then that being the case then YAHWEH did not put His Spirit in a physical body to develop a kingdom if it was not made up of men and nations, and if it does not mean exactly what the Scripture says for the occupation of the earth.
Thus we have always pointed out to you that this Israel of the Scripture is a household, a people, a race of people, the children of YAHWEH embodied in earth, and you are to rise and rule the earth with righteousness. This is the story of the Bible, the same people of the Old Testament and the New, a continuing posterity.
Let us go back once more into the covenants and the promises of YAHWEH for HE said:...'I will make a new covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah'. (Hebrews 8:8-12 & 10:16-17 and Jeremiah 31:31) This is the covenant of Destiny, it does not depend on our doing anything either good or bad. This is YAHWEH moving, it is His developing the awareness of His children as He moves to bring about this Destiny. In the place where it is said:...'They are not my people' . . . where the Jews call you goyim, and have said you have no part or lot in this matter then YAHWEH says:..I am going to have it known that you are my seed, my children of the household. That you are as the sands of the seashore and the stars of the heavens. That you are out of the heavens into earth as 'Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.'
Now; do you understand why there is such a warfare directed against those who believe the Gospel of the kingdom? Why they do not want to dwell on those things which have been declared? Now do you understand today why this attempt to mongrelize, to integrate, to destroy the society of the nations of Gods Kingdom? For if you mutate this race, call it the wave of the 'New Frontier', the 'Great Society', or the United Nations, any of the catch phrases to sweeten, yet the design is still the absorption, the destruction of our race and its integrity. It just ends with the destruction of your FAITH. It is only the people who can understand their covenants, and their inheritance that can read the 43 chapter of Isaiah and understand what it means for he records:...'I am YAHWEH, thy YAHSHUA, I am the mighty YAHWEH controller of the Universe which I created . . . I am thy Savior.' This is the mystery which Joshua talks about, and which the Epistle of the Apostle Paul contains that YAHSHUA was the fullness of YAHWEH dwelling bodily, that this was YAHWEH'S purpose as HE fulfills the promise to His offspring.
Turn back then to these great historic chapters of the Book of Hebrews given for the consumption of the followers of YAHSHUA. This Book belongs to no others, it relates to a people who are called Israel, to a people descendants of Heber, thru the Shem line of the House of Noah. This was a house in which a careful selection of racial purity was maintained, preserved. There were usurpers who tried to break this racial purity idea by YAHSHUA repudiated them. And all thru the Book of Acts you find who it was who put the Apostles and Disciples in prison or tried to kill them as they waged their war against our race, and of course against our Savior. Always they lift up opposition to YAHWEH'S kingdom, and seek to destroy it utterly if possible.
But in this Book of Hebrews the Apostle Paul is writing to the visible and invisible Christian church, and made this statement that since the children of YAHWEH are embodied in flesh He took a body like they had so as to identify with them. And remember Paul was writing this to those descendants of the Adamic race by route of Heber, the Hebrew of the Hebrews.
Now; we also want to make this clear, no amount of fear will ever stop the Gospel of the kingdom or the purposes of YAHWEH. The enemy is worried, and the reason they are worried is because you cannot be destroyed. They have thrown everything at the kingdom and still what YAHWEH had ordained . . . what He has declared they cannot stop. When He calls, His Sheep hear His voice and respond, and they have not been able to mongrelize this response out of the race. This they will not be permitted to do for you are a part of an Eternal Kingdom, you have an Eternal center, and He has declared He will use this center called church to call the signals. He will give the directions and you will lift up the standards of law, of spirit, of Grace, and indestructible people who are the church of the 'first born'. YAHSHUA of course is the mediator of the New Covenant, and this sprinkling of blood which we see thru out the Old Testament will not now be necessary, for under the New Covenant the Atonement is finished. This scarlet thread which runs thru the story is the symbolism of the blood of YAHSHUA, and it is the mark of those who are covered by the Blood Atonement. (vs 24) Once more He is to shake the earth, (the world order) and the heavens (the Adamic race) but this marks the removing of all things which can be shaken. This then is error that will be shaken loose and destroyed. (vs 27) We therefore who are receiving the kingdom that cannot be moved, let us then serve our YAHWEH-YAHSHUA-Savior with reverence and Love, for YAHWEH is a consuming fire which removes all error. (vs 29)
QUESTION:...Be not forgetful to entertain strangers; for thereby some have entertained Angels unaware? Hebrew 13:2.
ANSWER:...Back thru history Archangels have appeared with messages. If it is necessary for a personal appearance then some Angel appeared like Gabriel. The Apostle Paul in this last chapter is still recalling things that he has said before:...that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Thus the only individual embodied in human form who never had a beginning of days, and has no end of life was YAHWEH . . . who came as YAHSHUA . . . Savior.
Now; the body of YAHSHUA when it came forth from the Virgin birth by Divine participation and preparation is now an offspring by the process of birth. Therefore, this is in the same similitude of His original being. So in this Book of Hebrews, again the being who resided . . . this YAHSHUA was before Adam but the same yesterday, today and forever, and He had visited earth before. But now as He was embodied in earth thru the immaculate birth, then He had a mother, but this did not take away the fact that the body she carried had a totally inclusive seed prepared and developed by YAHWEH to bring forth at its completion the fullness of YAHWEH in the body. And this body of the Virgin Mary by a miracle, and it emerged still . . . YAHWEH-YAHSHUA the same yesterday, today and forever.
QUESTION:...Wherefore YAHSHUA (Jesus) that He might sanctify the people with His own blood suffered without the gate. Let us go forth therefore unto HIM without camp? Please explain???
ANSWER:...This outside the camp bearing His reproach is the religious system which has turned to embrace the world order. Always He calls for His people to come out of her, walk with HIM in a realm He will show you. Remember the Apostle Paul recorded in II Corinthians 6:14-18 . . . that you have no place with the darkness. 'If ye be Christs then what concord would Christ or his people have with Belial . . . the kingdom of Lucifer?' Come out from among them and be ye separate and touch not the unclean things. Remember Enoch walked outside the group in his day. Noah was righteous in his generation. Moses fled Egypt and then met YAHWEH. David was a man after YAHWEH'S own heart, but outside the system until He said:...'Thou desireth not sacrifice else would I give it.' Psalm 51:16.
Instead of Blood sacrifices which are no longer necessary let us offer praises to YAHWEH continually so that the fruit of our lips gives thanks to His Name. (vs 15)
The Apostle Paul closes this Book of Hebrews by saying:..Now this YAHWEH-YAHSHUA who raised His body from the dead, this great Shepherd of the Sheep, who redeems them thru the blood of the Everlasting covenant, makes you perfect in every good work to do His will working in you, thru this Holy Spirit in you. We thus hope to be pleasing in His sight. (vs 21) Again . . . Salute the Saints . . . these believing offspring of YAHSHUA . . . who is YAHWEH in the flesh.
Now; in the rest of the tape . . . there are still things we would like to bring to your attention as we turn to other sources such as Archaeology to verify the present and future with the past. From the Library here we would like to call your attention to the word Semite once again, so that you understand where this word came from when it is so wrongly used today. Dr. J.O. Kinnaman and Archaeologist with more than 54 years in the field reports and explains this word Semite, as he tells us also where the Hebrews came from. And you remember as you hear this the Genealogy of the Scripture from Adam, Seth and on down thru the outlined lineage. Dr. Kinnaman.................
The Hebrews came under the philological classification of Semite. This name was given to a group closely allied in language, religion, customs and physical appearance inhabiting South Western Asia and Northeast Africa long before Abraham. In reality the name Semite or Semitic refers to language not race. The word was coined about 150 years ago (now about 160) and has had no reference whatsoever to race. It seems to have been coined from the word Shem, the son of Noah.
From whence came the Hebrews, one of the groups of the Semites? Let us investigate the branches of the Hebrews from the finding of Archaeologists and thru interpretations especially of Biblical knowledge. Arabia is a land that has always in the past defied explorations. The pure blooded Arabian is a white man. Part of the Peninsula of Arabia is known today as Yemen, and it is 1000 miles from Palestine. The Ancient Port of Mocha famous for its coffee lies on the Red Sea. The soil of Yemen is rich, its climate is in every way favorable, producing commodities that the whole world has always from most Ancient times desired. Yemen is also identical with Sheba found in the table of nations. Genesis 10:26-32. The word Yemen means . . . right hand or south.
In the Arabian Peninsula in the Yemen sector there arose two forms of civilization . . . the Minoan, and the Sabaean. The first with its center at Main . . . the second at Marib. These people were the original Semites. To the rear then of the land of the Bible, to the far south, but an integrate sector of the Semitic world developed and lived a great civilization which has a great influence and molding power upon Palestine and surrounding countries. These people were founders of the International Commerce as it existed in antiquity. Also developed was Semitic politics, and we now possess thru the work of Archaeologists over 2,000 inscriptions that give us quite a clear view of these people, their economics, politics, foreign relations and so forth. We have the temple organizations, the members of which constituted a special caste. The city-state was a theocracy centering in the temple of the cities of God. The political and economic power of these religious organizations were very great and extensive. It was from such a civilization that the ancestors of the man known as Abraham came, or more properly we should say that it was from such a civilization that Abraham was produced. For Eber (Heber) had two sons by the names of Peleg and Yoktan. Thus the Patriarch ancestors of Abraham and the Biblical Hebrew was Eber which is pronounced Heber. From the son . . . Peleg came the close ancestors of Abraham, and from Yoktan came the ancestors of Arabian people who were also Hebrews. The Archaeologists cannot as yet give a date for the rise or beginning of this family called Hebrews but it goes back hundreds of years before Abraham himself. These people thru those years were always increasing, and migrating from their home country into surrounding territories north, east and west.
The name Abram is a good and fine West-Semitic name, appearing in the Akkadian, and even in other parts of the Old Testament as A-bi-ram (Numbers 16:1) and it means . . . the Divine Father is high.
We then trace the ancestors of Abraham as migrating from Felis-Arabia north into Babylonia, and then westward to Ur of the Chaldees. In this Ancient city of Queen Shu-bad . . . Abram was born. But Abraham never saw that Ancient city altho he walked over it. For that Ancient city was buried by the flood of Noah's time, and walls buried more than 60 feet below the city level of his time. Archaeologists have now found this Ancient city where Abraham was born, and can tell us what life was like in his home, about his schooling, and have even found bank drafts signed by Abraham. They have also gone deeper to find the city which was destroyed by the flood. It is easier to trace this line of the Hebrews after Abraham than it is to trace the Yoktan branch because the Bible story continues thru Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but there were other Hebrews who carried out their part in the program of YAHWEH.
(Now look . . . the word Semite then came from a man, it was a coined word about 160 years ago. We also have the coined word Jew today, and Jew and Semite are considered one and the same, but still the work of men which confuse the story.)
James T. Hammon also adds his voice with an interesting comment:...For those who want proof outside the Bible for this story then you now have it amply excavated from the sands of antiquity. The Bible does not aim to give a detailed account of how men lived in the past, of their customs and of their accomplishments, that would require a library instead of these 66 Books. But digging up the past brings to light places and people mentioned in the Bible, and helps shed light on these Books of the Bible, the writers, on words, and on statements questioned and denied by critics. The criticism has now been soundly refuted by Archaeologists and their findings. The skepticism of the past as to knowledge, civilizations, and so forth is now laid to rest. The building of the Great Pyramid when understood does the rest. The word Pyramid in Hebrew is 'a memorial monument' it is located in the center of the earth, and was built by Shepherd Kings, as the 'Book of the Dead' and the Books of Horus both declare. And from all findings the Shepherd Kings were Sethites who invaded Egypt. It was not but for a tomb, but for ONE who was to come, and the Egyptians called HIM Osiris . . . Lord of Light and Resurrection.
Absolute truth rather than theory, or probability or possibility is what the true Archaeologist seeks. Archaeology is now then an exact science, it is classified knowledge. We can depend upon a law of the Universe always acting the same, it does not act one way at one time and another way at another time. Science then is the word of truth as seen and interpreted by mankind, especially the white race to whom the documents now called the Bible were given. If science then is the word of truth, and the Bible is the word of God, how can they conflict, or contradict each other? Of the hundreds of thousands of artifacts discovered by the Archaeologists, not one has ever been found that contradicts, denies, or obscures 'The Word', phrase, or sentence of the Bible from cover to cover, if compared with the true or original manuscripts, not just any mans translation. And now the flood . . . we have told you that the flood of Noah’s time was not all over the earth, but that there was once such a flood which did cover all the world. Let us then see what Dr. Herman L. Hoeh has to say about this subject:...Yes, there was a Pre-Adamic destruction by a flood. This is the only possible way by which hard coal deposits found today could have been formed. Geologists are in agreement on this because world travelers know that coal is not being formed in the jungles today. Plant life dies, decays, and rots into humus. Before coal can be formed plant remains must not only be covered quickly to prevent decay, but must be covered deep enough so the massive weight of millions of tons of sediment will transform the carbon of these plants into coal. The Pre-Adamic destruction is the only possible way by which hard coal found on earth today could have been formed. What greater proof of a world wide Pre-Adamic flood do evolutionary geologists need before they will admit that the true facts of science agree with the simple plain truth of God's Word:..'In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.' The earth was so beautiful that the morning stars and the sons of God sang for joy, but in the very next verse it says:...'The earth became without form and was void.' The Hebrew word translated here as . . . was . . . should have been . . . because it is. Genesis 19:26 and Genesis 2:7, and many other places in the Bible translated as . . . became.
And another witness as to the Archaeologists findings is at the old city of Kish on the bed of the Euphrates River which is now dry. Dr. Langdon in 1928-29., found the bed of clear water laid had laid clay in the lower strata of the ruins of Kish. Pictures show the flood layer just above the wall ruins. At Fara, half way between Babylon and Ur, once on the Euphrates River but now 40 miles east, were low lying groups of mounds, beaten by the sands of the desert. They were excavated in 1931 by Dr. Erich Schimidt of the University of Pennsylvania. Here he found water laid clay and sand without relics of human occupation between the middle city, and the bottom city.
At Ur of the Chaldees the same results, thus along the Euphrates, this mighty River you find where the flood waters came down out of the high mountains on its way to the sea. Excavations at Ur of Chaldees have been extensive. A pre-flood city destroyed by the flood has been found preceding the time of Abraham, it was a most magnificent city, a center of manufacturing, of farming and shipping, in a land of fabulous fertility and wealth, with Caravans going in every direction to distant lands, and ships sailing from the docks of Ur down the Persian Gulf with cargoes of copper and hard stone. Then by the time of Abraham that city Ur had been rebuilt altho magnificent still it was eclipsed by Babylon. And yet it remained an important city on down to the Persian period of time, the gulf receded and changed the rivers course and now it was running ten miles to the east, and Ur finally was abandoned to be itself buried by the sand storms of the desert.
The University Museum of Philadelphia, and the British Museum in a joint expedition under the leadership of Dr. C.L. Wooley for twelve seasons from 1922-34., each season lasting four or five winter months with 200 workmen each season, then quite thoroughly explored the secrets of those ruins. In the University Museum of Philadelphia you may see the many things found in those excavations. Many pictures are found, and this old city being excavated now shows the walls of the city, the Royal Cemetery, the streets of brick and so forth.
In our world today we find that everyone demands proof of the authority of the Bible while they reject the proof within the Bible itself that there was a great flood at one time, as well as the flood in the time of Noah. People seem to have a chip on their shoulders, so to speak. They want some man to prove as to whether the Bible is true. They accept Gods world only if some man verifies HIM. For well over a century or two we find Biblical Scholars have labored to undermine the Bible. They taught the world that Moses could not have written the Books attributed to him because writings was not yet invented until after the time of Moses. Archaeology then came to the front and by 1963 while working in a dig in Ashketon, Israel, the author learned that Biblical Archaeology was piling up confirming evidence so rapidly that the critics had to come up with a new way to stop this knowledge. They do not accept the Bible as the basis from which to begin their studies, but now interpret the Bible by facts they are arranging to fit their concept of what the Bible should say. Today they use a framework of isolated and often unrelated facts unearthed by Archaeology built into an elaborate house of cards. The Bible then is judged by this fictitious interpretation of history. When a difference appears, it is the Bible which is judged wrong. Yet the Bible is the only authentic Ancient, and well-organized framework in which to fit all the facts unearthed. No secular source contains such a vast array of historical facts from which to interpret the myriads of tiny unrelated details of Archaeology.
More Archaeological findings to prove that the Bible story is true, are found among Ancient Babylonian tablets. One of these is the 'Temptation Seal' and it is now in the center of the British Museum. In the center of this Seal is a Tree, on the right a man, on the left a woman plucking fruit and behind the woman a serpent standing erect as if whispering to her.
Then we now have the Adam and Eve Seal which was found in 1932 by Dr. E.A. Speiser of the University Museum of Pennsylvania, near the bottom of the Tepe Gawa Mound which is twelve miles north of Nivevah. He dated the Seal at about 3500 B.C., or more and called it strangely suggestive of the Adam and Eve story, a man and woman naked, walking as tho downcast and broken hearted followed by a serpent. The Seal is about an inch in diameter engraved on stone. It is now in the University Museum at Philadelphia.
Then in 1872 George Smith of the British Museum found tablets from the Library at Ninevah, and on them accounts of the flood of Noah's time which curiously parallel the Bible story. In those tablets were these expressions repeatedly:...the flood, the age before the flood, and inscriptions of the time of the flood. This epic gives the story of a ruler who visited Noah and how Noah tells him of the flood, the building of the Ark, the loading of the Ark. How the rain poured down, and then the flood being over, the ship grounded on Mt. Zazir, tells of coming out of the Ark and the offering of sacrifice. This Gilgamesh Seal is in the University Museum of Pennsylvania as well.
Now;...did the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah really exist as the Bible tells us? In 1924 Dr. W.F. Albright and M.G. Kyle directing a joint expedition of the American schools and the Zenia Seminary found at the south east corner of the Dead Sea, five Oasis, made by fresh water streams, and centrally located to them on a plain 500 feet above the level of the Dead Sea at a place called Bab-ed-dra, the remains of a great fortified enclosure, evidently a 'high place' for religious festivals. There was a great quantity of Potsherds, flints, and other remains dating between 2500 B.C., and 2000 B.C., with the evidence that the population ended abruptly about 2000 B.C., and has been a region of unmixed desolation ever since. There is indications that a great cataclysm changed the soil and the climate. The opinion of Albright and Kyle and most Archaeologists is that Sodom and Gomorrah were located on these Oasis further down stream, and that the site is now covered by the Dead Sea. Kyle said that under Mt. Usdom there is a stratum of salt 150 feet thick and above this stratum of Marl mingled with free sulphur and that with the vast beds of black petroleum products on both sides and more abundant at the south end, then as the proper time came God kindled the gases and a great explosion took place. The salt and sulphur were blown red hot into the heavens so that it literally rained fire and brimstone from the heavens. There are many pillars of salt at the south end of the Dead Sea which have thru time born the name of 'Lots Wife', but everything about the region seems to dovetail exactly with the Biblical story. (Dr. Swift told us that the bit about Lots Wife becoming a Pillar of Salt was not in the original . . . that perhaps she turned back to the city for the rest of her family was there.)
Now; we always get this question:...why did god command Israel to destroy the Canaanites and drive them out? Deuteronomy 7:2-3. Well Joshua went to the task in dead earnest with God helping in a mighty way, but why??? In 1904-09, in excavations at Gezar, a Canaanite stratum was discovered that preceded Israelite occupation; there is the ruins of a 'high place' which had been a temple in which they worshiped their god Baal, and their Goddess Asntoreth (Astarte). It was an enclosure 150 to 200 feet surrounded by a wall and open to the sky where they held their religious festivals. Within the walls were ten rude stone pillars five to eleven feet high before which the sacrifices were offered. Under the debris MaCalister found great numbers of jars and these jars contained the remains of children who had been sacrificed to Baal. This whole area proved to be a cemetery for newborn babies. Another horrible practice was what they called 'foundation sacrifices' for when a house was built a child was sacrificed, and its body built into the wall to bring 'good luck' to the rest of the family. Many of these were found in Gezer also at Megiddo, Jericho and other places. Also in this 'high place' under the rubbish MaCalister found enormous quantities of images and plaques of Ashtoreth which rudely exaggerated sex organs designed to foster sensual feelings.
Now; the Cainanites worshiped by immoral indulgence, as a religious rite, in the presence of their gods and then by murdering their first born children as a sacrifice to these same gods. It seems that in large measure the law of Canaan land had become sort of Sodom and Gomorrah on a national scale. Thus do you still wonder why YAHWEH commanded Israel to exterminate the civilization which was now such abominable filthy and brutalized that they had no right to exist. This is one of history’s examples of the wrath of God against the wickedness of the nations. These were a Satanic progeny who had murdered a peaceful people, but had now reached the fullness of the cup of their iniquity. Besides God was establishing Israel for the grand purpose of paving the way for Christ, and showing the world there was one True and Living God. If Israel fell this far there would be no reason for her to exist as a nation. So it was needful to cleanse this land for Israel to live in, and Joshua made a good start, but Israel did not keep it up fully.
Again the Oriental Institute excavating at Megiddo which is near Samaria found in the stratum of Ahab’s time, the ruins of a temple of Ashtoreth the wife of Baal. Just a few steps from that temple was a cemetery with many jars containing remains of infants sacrificed in that temple.
We continue facts from Archaeology in the next tape........
MAY YAHWEH BLESS------E.M.
